** This was a popular trope in the Land of Norman Lear. ''Series/GoodTimes'' and ''Series/{{Maude}}'' did similar charity amateur-hour episodes.
* ''Series/AreYouBeingServed'' did this quite a few times, usually for Mr. Grace's birthday.
** In later seasons they seemed to happen more often, seemingly as an excuse to get Mrs Slocombe and Mr Humphries into ridiculous outfits and flamboyant dresses, even if it made no sense in context of the show.

* Parodied heavily in an article at ''TheOnion'', in which a ragtag bunch of kids band together to save their clubhouse by putting on an incredibly dark, sexual, [[TrueArtIsAngsty angsty]] and [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible incomprehensible]] avant-garde art play, including a "whore" squatting out filthy young and pre-teen boys nude with body-painted penises.

So [[SavingTheOrphanage the orphanage is in trouble]]. Big, costly trouble. How are those orphans going to raise all that money? It's simple: put on a show! We'll use the modest singing talents of the secretary corps, and we can put a stage in that old barn out back, and surely it won't be too hard to rig up a spotlight or two...

This trope causes ''no end'' of frustration for those who work in theater, especially when they have to explain just how long it takes and how much it costs to "just put on a show."

* Ciel and crew from ''BlackButler'' hire some actors to put on a play for a bunch of orphans (for publicity rather than money, they already have plenty of that). When the actors get delayed, guess who has to fill in the cast...
* In ''DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' Miia and Rachnera help [[PunnyName Ils Nineta]] the ninetailed fox put on a super sentai show to help draw visitors to the shrine where she works. Rachnee uses her webs to provide Ils with some WireFu and new clothes when she transforms, while Miia ends up playing the villain, much to her resentment.
